I am a MLP collector with thousands of ponies and like most collectors I won't consider my collection complete until I have EVERYTHING! Firstly, this book doesn't have pictures, however, the back of the book reveals that the ILLUSTRATED EDITION is due out later this year with pictures of every single pony every made. (If there had been pictures in this edition, it would have had to have been over 300 pages long because there is so much information already!) This edition was designed for advanced users, though, so honestly I didn't miss the pictures that much. Any pony collector knows that the hardest part of any MLP collection is getting all the little accessories together and things like brushes and ribbons are hugely important. Pair a pony with her original ribbon and brush and she's worth a whole lot more! I was blown away by how complete this guide was, there is nowhere online where you can find all this information together in one place, and it's incredibly helpful when you are going out to antique stores and need to know which ponies or accessories you still need. I am so pumped about walking around the MLP Fair this year with my copy of this book all marked up so I know which ponies its worth it to splurg on! The book has over 150 pages of information and also includes very cool bonus sections like how to tell your Newborn Twins apart and Collector's Value Alerts as to what the most valuable ponies are. Sure, it would be great to have pictures, but for a serious MLP collector such as myself this book is a million times more accurate and complete than the old Debbie Birge one and I think it is very safe to say that the illustrated edition will become the ultimate pony bible!
